I completely understand the “family” factor. My best friend in
Walnut Creek loves San Antonio, but a majority of her family lives in
the Bay Area (She’s one of 5 and her husband is one of 7), parents
are still alive and her son and his cousins too…I would guess
nearly 200 from immediate family to 2nd cousins…
They were actually my only close to family I had there. My family
was more in Southern California and my parents were here in San
Antonio. I know all is relative…home prices, gas, groceries, etc.
If I could’ve afforded it and established myself well enough, I would
have definately stayed in the Bay Area. But I guess God is trying to
direct me in another direction.
So we are actually following the Dave Ramsey “snowball” plan combined
with the “envelope plan” I picked up from Mvelopes.com. Fix our
past “debt” mistakes and start growing our financial future. I know
I’ll be back to the Bay Area for vacation, but at least living here
in Texas, I have an opportunity to “save” some money for it instead
of using Credit!!!
Enjoy that beautiful weather, sites and sounds for me Sherri!!!
